Kinematics is a system for 3D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing.
Created by the Weimar based collective weAREmedienkuenstler, Rock Paper Scissors is a game played between two computers. Like in the classic game, each computer has its own random algorithm running, choosing one of the three possible items. Connected by an ethernet cable, each computer plays its hand — the winning pc gets a point.
Created by London based experimental architecture and design studio Minimaforms, this project is speculative life-like robotic environment that raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday.
The Well–Sequenced Synthesizer is a series of sequencers created by Luisa Pereira at ITP — physical interfaces to play with musical rules.
Generating Utopia is a realtime visualisation of social location data that explores questions of what human habitats could look like if it was possible to transform them depending on the location-based behaviour of their residents.
Commissioned by Sonos, Light House is an interactive light and sound installation created by NY’s SoftLab that responds in real-time to Sonos components. The installation is constructed of a grid of 600 fluorescent light tubes at varying heights and lengths to create an interior volume.
Currently on show at the ACME. gallery in Los Angeles is a piece by John Carpenter titled trailers_anemone, an interactive installation that explores fluid, undulating trails of light through time and space.
Once we take a step back from our screens and look at exciting new opportunities Leap Motion provides, we may discover and begin to describe new ways of computer-human interaction. Here are our top 10 up-to-date.
Studio Hands use Processing and openFrameworks to send send designs of T-shirts and the bag via sound to be screen-printed.
Getting your Processing programs up and running in Eclipse and showing you how to take advantage of some of its great features, like code auto-completion, code hints, quick fix, great syntax colour themes, among others.
‘Portrait’ is a series of digital portraits representing an identity (or a face) of a movie. Custom software detects faces from every 24 frames of a movie, and creates an average face of all found faces.
Following the recent clashes with 3D printers over IP concerns, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez chose to disguise his latest derivative of Mickey Mouse and to explore this smoothed 3D aesthetic
This project is a book that highlights the furious rhythms of the jazz era, produced by generative design where authentic music scores arranged for ‘big band’ were translated in the text composition of carefully selected typefaces by notes parameters.
After thousands of developers entered the Intel Perceptual Challenge contest by submitting their ideas, 750 have now been selected to receive a camera to continue to the next stage of the competition.
Algorithmically generating 3d printed forms created for the sole purpose of listening to the “ocean”. In this process, the project attempts to address the role of experience in the mediation of the virtual world to the real world and visa versa.
Project explores the relationship between landscape, agriculture and digital fabrication by intercepting the process of precision farming by generative design.
Brendan Dawes visualises six million rows of information for EE’s roll-out of 4G in these 12000 x 23000 px data visualisations created with Processing.
Animalia and Caelum are two projects that take position that our idealisation, romanticism and paradoxical thinking in ecology is holding us back from finding new ways to interact with nature.
Eyes on the Sky is a process-based investigation into generative design and the weather linking 64 public-access web cameras across Europe, recording the colour of the sky and producing a book that collects a week of paintings where cameras paint the weather.
Kinograph is an open source project that makes film digitisation affordable and scaleable. It uses components available on the internet, a few 3D printed parts, and a consumer level camera and it produces high quality video with sound.
